in this country when this kind of garbage comes up? president obama is doing what the country wants him to do. this is where the people are. the election results haven't changed. get your cell phones out. i want to know what you think. tonight's question, will threats from the far right derail the president's sensible gun reforms? text a for yes. text b for now to 622639. you can always go to our blog at ed.msnbc.com. we'll bring results later on in the show. i'm joined tonight by bob shrum, contributor to interest daily beast. also david corn, msnbc analyst and d.c. bureau chief for mother jones. good evening. >> good evening. >> we are covering the crazy tonight. is that okay with you guys? >> you're covering them pretty well. >> well, i don't want to get in the way of any crazy talk that you might have to add to this conversation. what do you say to these people? >> well, you just made a good point that broadcasters and talkers have to sort of do what they can and make this debate a reasonable one. i'm still waiting for anybody right of center. political leader, a thought leader, a columni
.c., covering a huge event for this city and a huge event for the entire country. president barack obama's second inauguration. >> you can just see the beautiful picture behind us. so much going on around the nation's capital this weekend. cnn you can be sure is covering it all. parades, concerts, and religious services all of it leading up to the big main event, president obama's inauguration ceremony coming up on monday highlights of that event, the swearing in, of course, and the inaugural speech. white house correspondent brianna keilar joins me to talk more about this. first of all, let's talk about the speech. i understand that the president's still working on it. so what are the themes? what's the focus? >> he is still working on it. he'll be doing tweaks till the last minute. right now he's doing some major tweaks and he's been writing this during the day in the oval office but also at night after sasha and malia go to bed as well as his wife goes to bed. he has time alone in the residence to work on it. some of the major themes and we just learned this from dan lothian who cover
. thank you so much. >>> big question is, can a divided country come together in president obama's second term? well, that is a very big question and that's ahead in our continuing coverage of inauguration weekend. >> but first, thousands of americans are traveling here to washington, d.c. from all around the country. a lot of them are behind us right here on this mau. our tom foreman meets one man making that journey. >> all across the nation by planes, trains and automobiles, the faithful are converging on the capital. from georgia, maurice madden made the journey last time to see barack obama take the oath. now it will cost him about $3,000 and a couple of days vacation, but he's going again. >> i knew on the night that he was re-elected, as president of the united states, that i wanted to return to washington to be part of this celebration. >> the president elect of the united states, barack h. obama. >> the last inauguration saw 1.million americans witnessing this quadrennial moment. this year the crowds are not expected to be as big. >> welcome back. >> but still enough to feel hote
failing the country? the country chose obama, if you want to save the republic, save the next election. if your conservative philosophy is indeed right, winning will come. joining me now, robert costa, and dave weigel, both of them doing great reporting, i appreciate you being here. robert, i want to start with you, tell me the thinking behind the three-month extension, why three months? >> a lot of it has to do public relations, i think what i heard from the retreat, and members in the room, they want to start to win the pr battle again, to do it they have to take the debt limit off the table, and fight with spending in regard to the upcoming defense cuts, the sequester. they want to put the debt limit off for three months, get it out of the headlines, not let the president use it as a republican punching bag. trying to tell his colleagues, come to the center, let's move on to other issues. >> one of the interesting things about the way they did it and in doing it for only three months, dave, when you do it for three months the idea is you can always come back to it if you want. but i
troubling. a white house official told nbc news it's a terrible way to run the country. but the aide gave no indication president obama would veto a temporary extension if this is how congressional republicans want to govern, so be it. they already have an approval rating of, let's see, 14% from the american people. can they do better than that? maybe they just want to see how low it can go. the writing was on the wall yesterday when republican budget chairman paul ryan told members they need to be prepared for a debt ceiling increase. the attitudes from republican leaders are a lot different today. senator jon cornyn of texas wrote an op-ed said it may be necessary to partially shut down the government in order to secure the long-term fiscal well-being of the country. now cornyn tells the chronicle editorial board we will raise the debt ceiling. we are not going to default on our ded debt. two years ago, they were gloating over their debt ceiling hostage strategy. >> no president in the near future, maybe in the distant future, will be able to get the debt ceiling increased without a rei
to doping last night on oprah. make that doprah. president obama is bushing for stronger gun controls in this country. why then about 10 years or so ago in the illinois state l legislature when gun free zones came up he voted present and not for it. we will talk more about that. jack hannah an expert in animals. right? maybe not the expert you think. we are going to put him to the test. fox and friends start live in new york city 14 minutes from right now. reen giant vegetables it's easy to eat like a giant... ♪ and feel like a green giant. ♪ ho ho ho ♪ green giant well, dad, i spent my childhood living with monks learning the art of dealmaking. you've mastered monkey-style kung fu? no. priceline is different now. you don't even have to bid. master hahn taught you all that? oh, and he says to say (translated from cantonese) "you still owe him five bucks." your accent needs a little work. >> a rare winter storm dumping several inches of snow in the southeast. one person has died and a storm warning is still in effect for several states this morning. nicole furgason is live in nor
of the country and about the economy and this is an american public right now that lowered its standards and lowered its expectations from four years ago. in some ways that's a good situation from the obama white house and sometimes lower expectations make it easier to get achievements done, but this is a country that is still being hit by the aftereffects of the great recession and also this poll comes after the terrible tragic shooting as well as the showdown in the new year. >> we polled folks when they were already pretty down. >> let me ask you about the war in iraq. president obama's political prominence first propelled by his opposition to the war. what did we find in the poll with regards to the war in iraq? >> it was fascinating, a number we had. 51% the iraq war wasn't worth it. that it was the near 60% and that's been the case since 2007 and the nbc/wall street journal poll. the iraq war is the most understated issues in the last few years and this was an issue that propelled president obama into the white house and allowed him to beat hillary clinton and beat john mccain in t
and without tax reform and without some spending plan that congress can accept and the country can accept, the poll also said that we're talking about obama before the show that the majority of americans believe what's hindering economic growth is the fact that washington continually finds itself at an impasse or a position around how to resolve what seem to be to me and i think a lot of americans commonsense balanced solutions that should be put forward. without that, all of this, i don't think, comes to fruition. >> let me say one thing before we go. michael, if, in fact, the ofa infrastructure does work, does that not then -- does that not mean now all future presidencies will have -- >> the eternal campaign. to some extent, you do already, but this will rachet up one notch. >> it's also -- the political parties have disintegrated in terms of power. the republican side, everything is -- >> understatements. >> i know. the tea party groups, the stuff, those are now the epicenters of the political power right now. it's not the rnc. what organize for action is going to do is take look the
in the next few years donald trump succeeds in proving that obama's birth certificate's a fraud, how will that affect the ability to govern the country? no, no. i guess what i'm kind of struck by is we're talking about now few days away from the second inauguration, what are the big themes to define the obama term and seems to me maybe more than we have seen in the recent past, this second term really, the basic contours of the second term set in place. it is this fight over what the safety net is, what the balance between spending cuts and revenue increases should be in terms of dealing with the deficit. that's been the battle that's waged since early 2011 and republicans grabbed control of the house. they have the house for two years and feels like more of a ceremonial second inaugural than usual. >> yeah. and i think he's going to have a very tough -- toure was right saying i have a limited idea of how much to get done in this term. lbj in 1965 had had the largest landslide in history, more democrats in congress than any other time in the 20th century except for roosevelt and told
that is impacting american families, hard-working taxpayers all across this country. when president obama was in the senate, when he was a u.s. senator, he voted against raising the debt ceiling. and he said it was a lack of leadership that had brought us to this point. and so i would, at the beginning of this congress, hope that the president would make this a new start, where we could look at this, and that we'll actually get a budget in place. the senate hasn't passed a budget now for four years. the president, unfortunately, yesterday, said that he's going to delay his budget. even though the law says that he's supposed to submit the budget by february 4th. that is concerning to me. that we are on auto pilot. that the federal government continues to grow, continues to -- we're continuing to spend more money, and we need the president to join in this effort to get our fiscal house in order. >> you're quoted in telling politico that a government shutdown seems surely possible. you said in part that i think it's possible that we would shut down the government to make sure president obama
saying we are listening to your concerns, ceos of the country -- >> but never meant it. he never really meant it. obama. i'm directly going at the president -- >> he doesn't have an interest in deregulation. he snipped a couple of regulations and then added hurnds, literally hundreds of economically significant regulations during his term, and that's just only going to increase going forward. there is no strategy going forward to any kind of corporate tax reform. he talks about it but it's not going anywhere. there's no -- >> how can you -- what's your defense on this? >> i'm at a loss for words. >> yes. i would imagine so. >> i don't know, about the jobs council i don't think it's a huge deal that it hasn't met because they've already made recommendations. and the question is when are those recommendations ever going to see the light of day in congress. he has an american jobs act he put out. it hasn't gone anywhere in the republican house. i think those are some of the proposals that came out of the jobs council. but in terms of what mark said i think he's exactly right. the president
the current value at $294 million, that's a 7% increase since the obamas moved in. meantime, two high profile obama supporters will miss the inauguration on monday. both oprah and george clooney will be out of the country according to their reps. however, no shortage of celebs monday. beyonce singing "the national anthem." katy perry, steve ri wonder are just a few of the big names to be there. nbc will have coverage beginning at 5:30 a.m. with a special edition of "morning joe" and i will be live along the parade route for msnbc and nbc. those are the things we thought you should know. >>> and time now for the "gut check." as president obama heads in to the second term, our new nbc news/"wall street journal" poll found 43% of americans are optimistic about the next four years. 22% have mixed feelings. what's your gut tell you? how much hope and optimism do you have about the next four years? cast that vote and take a look at what you're saying about yesterday's "gus check." do you believe manti te'o's story he was the victim of a cruel hoax about a dead girlfriend that never existed? 16% say
of these people. remember, it was voters in pennsylvania that president obama said was clinging to their guns and religion. >> now, the republican party in what's going on an uneasy alliance for them in coal country, is the fact these rank and file guys, they're pro labor union. that's why the club for growth and some of these more conservative groups don't like her because she's pro union and trying to be pro coal. >> and there was the big sort of first test we're going to see of republicans in washington, d.c., whether or not they can control their own primaries or wield the sort of influence they've lost over the past couple of years. one of the best candidates, one of the best recruits that a republican party could bring in terms of trying to win a race in november, but this a low turnout in west virginia, maybe somebody runs to her right and we get a sharon engel, christine o'donnell situation. >> and we've seen still, democratic party still has some strength left in a place like kentucky and west virginia and it's usually based in this, the divide over business, isn't it? >> and the big
. there are conflicting reports about casualties. b.p. along with other energy companies in the country are moving nonessential employees from algeria. once again, in the last hour the white house strongly condemning the attack on the plant and the white house spokesperson saying president obama is being briefed regularly on the situation. they would not provide any clarity about whether or not there are u.s. drones over algeria at this point. to give you the background, a group connected to al qaeda has claimed responsibility for this attack. they said it is in retaliation for fran's moving into mali. they tried to put a stop to islamic militants trying to take over that country. >> michelle, the earlier reports i saw in the associated press, news source, there were multiple fatalities, maybe as many as 35 among the whose stages. that is now an unreliable report, right? >> absolutely. at this point no one at any senior level in any senior government can confirm those numbers for us at this point or those reports. >> michelle, thank you very much. >>> onto the debt ceiling. the deadline approachin
obama care raise the cost of health care in the country? no. i don't think it did. i think it was designed -- >> it's going to be a big entitlement. it's going to cost money to cover 40 million -- >> you're shifting tension from the private balance sheet to the public balance sheet. that's not a net increase in cost in any economic sense. >> but if you don't attribute any of the efficiency of our health care system to innovation from the profit incentive, is there any business that wouldn't be better if there wasn't a profit incentive, then? >> of course a profit incentive is important. but in health care, in fact, what the major any novations come out of the center for disease control, the national institutes of health. we have an enormous public sector contribution to this. >> right. but i think that -- >> to overlook that reality is really -- >> -- the basic science. but the application of the basic science comes from entrepreneurs and people that are in the business for profit. no? medical devices -- >> the health care system has got a profit making component. it's got
towards that they try to atracking poll. 49% for obama. 67% in the polls four years ago. 18 point decline from that. the way that he is operating is not designed to make him more popular and bring the country together. >> now, one of the people that is thought to be a competitor to the democrats in the next presidential election is governor chris christie of new jersey. recently the nra took out an add saying that president obama is a hypocrite because he sends his children to school protected by armed guards and that he doesn't want armed guards at other schools. christie didn't like that ad by the nra and said this. >> don't be dragging people's children into this. it's wrong. and i think it demeans them. and it makes them less of a valid, trusted source of information on the real issues that confront this debate. >> so what did you think? >> well, a reasonable objection to the nra, remember, he is from new jersey, a blue state. he has got to get reelected this year. and he has a legitimate beef with the ad. i frankly think the underlying point of the nra ad accurate one. there is is el
can't govern the country that way. >> the question is how did you -- the problem is that compromise cannot be unilaterally imposed. this is the fundamental conundrum of the obama era right? >> chris, that was the message of the last election. we've had an opportunity to meet with the republicans. they got the message, too. it's time for collaboration. time for cooperation. >> right. >> their leadership has not gotten that. >> political class, the elite of the political class, the leadership on the republican side that doesn't want their members to do what they need to do to stay, you know, really listening to their constituents. >> i know your district. all right? i spent time in madison, wisconsin. >> it is a very strong, progressive district. >> you replaced tammy baldwin who is now amazingly a united states, a friend, colleague of yours. i know that district. okay? if you are on a bill that this cosponsored with eric cantor, whatever it is, someone is going to come in and primary you or someone is going to come in and threaten to primary you or run ads or you'll go home to the fo
more than 24 hours away from the second inauguration of president obama. good morning from the nation's capital where we have taken the program for the this historic event. i'm chris hayes. yesterday was celebrated as gun appreciation day as gun shows around the country. five people were shot in separate incidents at three gun shows. and here in washington, vice president joe biden is about to take his official oath of office to begin his second term and we're standing by to bring it live to you as it happens. right now i'm joined by msnbc contributor jerry bernstein. former chief economist and policy adviser for vice president biden. and new york tannen. former domestic policy direct or four the obama/biden campaign. and jen saki and former obama white house deputy communication's director now seep your vice president and manager director at global strategy group, i public affairs and research firm and back at the table, democratic governor mallory of connecticut. good to have you back, governor. >> good to be back. >> we're going live to the vice president's residence of the naval o
, a lot of folks from suburban places around the country, it's become a bit unruly on economics. and i think obama has papered over that for the last four years. but i think that's going to change here in the next few years. the first issue where i think we'll see a conversation on this is the question of entitlements. there are some folks in the democratic party who are happy to have a conversation on issues like the eligibility age for medicare. other democrats like sherrod brown, the senator from ohio, i talked to, they say hell, no, we are not going to have a conversation about that. that is core to our dna, and we're not going to move on that. >> j-mart, last time republicans had an internal debate about a lot of these issues, a lot of folks divided the party. you mention smd moderaed some m coming over to the democratic party. do you see a contentious primaries in the future for the 2014 midterms? >> well, look. i don't think you're going to see the sort of club-for-growth-style conservative on moderate attacks that you see in the gop. i think you're going to see some of that. ke

, there was tremendous partisanship in this country. a tumultuous time. the level of bipartisanship. there's such hatred that you can't get in a room. it never seems like obama gets in the room. biden got in the room beforehand. but look, everybody hates each other down there. it's exactly the opposite of what you would expect from a respected nation. it makes us look mickey mouse. i don't blame fitch. look, we have to pay bills, the constitution says it, but everybody doesn't seem to care much about the constitution right now. >> i thought yesterday at the president's news conference, i thought the partisanship was at an all-time high in regards to the fiscal cliff debate. they, referring to republicans in congress, they can either acts responsibly and pay america's bills or act irresponsibly and put america through another economic crisis. it feels a little bit worse, markets sort of shrugged that off. that was good news in all this. but it seems like the dividing line is real firm and real deep between republicans and democrats at this point. >> i wonder whether we know anything. one of the things th
